Get there for the 10 am tour, in English or Espanol, and prepare for immersion in generosity and Mexican folk art. Our guided tour, just over an hour, was superb.

Historic house fantastically renovated to house the impressive private collection of Mexican folk Arte. Definitely a must see. Donations accepted go to local charities. We had a great guide who pointed out the different types of materials and origins of the art.
